Bracing For & Embracing the Fall as a Blkademic

Recognizing the unique vulnerabilities Black academics (Blkademics) are facing in the current sociopolitical and campus climate, this interactive webinar will provide attendees with practical strategies to help them as they begin the fall semester. By increasing awareness, reflecting on holistic wellness needs, and getting clear on the strategies that resonate on a personal level, Blkademics will better be able to brace for and potentially embrace the semester ahead after attending this NCFDD webinar. Grounded in counseling and prevention psychology, Black feminism, and solution-focused theories, this virtual workshop will offer Blkademics empirically-grounded and culturally-relevant strategies for surviving and being well as an academic today.

Facilitator Dr. Della V. Mosley, Ph.D., is an Assistant Professor in the Counseling Psychology Program at the University of Florida. She developed and leads the Wellness, Equity, Love, Liberation, and Sexuality Healing and Research Collective. She co-founded Academics for Black Survival and Wellness (#Academics4BlackLives). Della utilizes qualitative and intersectional approaches to exploring the experiences and promoting the psychopolitical wellness of Black and/or queer and/or transgender People of Color. 

This session is offered at no cost to all graduate students and faculty through a partnership between the Office of Institutional Diversity & Inclusion at Mississippi State University and the National Center for Faculty Development & Diversity.
